Hey all you leasers out there!  Looking for a cheap way to get (and keep) yourself organized?  Grab one of these netbooks.  They are small, so they are easy to grab and go between the salon and home, they connect to WiFi and run XP.  They even come in a handful of different colors.  All of the hairdressers at our salon have their own.  We went with the Acer Aspire One because they were on sale at Office DepotYou can pick one up for $399 or less.  You can use Gmail and Google Calendar and Mint (all free!) and keep your business world and personal life all tucked into a neat little package.  It has never been easier to be a solo salon owner!

Touch Suite

I found a new salon automation product that you might find interesting.  It is a complete touchscreen system with appointments, credit card swiping, bar code scanning and email/text.  You can buy it outright or you can lease it for $149 a month (they sometimes have specials, so chat with the sales folk for the most current pricing options.)  They also provide merchant credit card processing and will meet or beat your current rates.

I haven’t used it, so I can’t tell you how well it works, but it seems pretty cool!
